Autosuggest Module


Bing Maps Web Control SDK retirement

Bing Maps Web Control SDK is deprecated and will be retired. Free (Basic) account customers can continue to use Bing Maps Web Control SDK until June 30th, 2025. Enterprise account customers can continue to use Bing Maps Web Control SDK until June 30th, 2028. To avoid service disruptions, all implementations using Bing Maps Web Control SDK will need to be updated to use Azure Maps Web SDK by the retirement date that applies to your Bing Maps for Enterprise account type. For detailed migration guidance, see Migrate from Bing Maps Web Control SDK and Migrate Bing Maps Enterprise applications to Azure Maps with GitHub Copilot.

Azure Maps is Microsoft's next-generation maps and geospatial services for developers. Azure Maps has many of the same features as Bing Maps for Enterprise, and more. To get started with Azure Maps, create a free Azure subscription and an Azure Maps account. For more information about azure Maps, see Azure Maps Documentation. For migration guidance, see Bing Maps Migration Overview.

Module Name: Microsoft.Maps.Autosuggest

Namespace: Microsoft.Maps

The Autosuggest module takes in a string of text and provides a list of suggested addresses or places that are similar to the provided string of text. This module can be used with a map, or independently on its own. When used with a map instance, the map view can be used to help influence the weight of the suggestions such that they are more relevant to where the user is looking on the map. For instance, if you pass in “London”, the expected top suggestion would “London, UK”, however, when taking the map view into consideration, and if the map is zoomed into Kentucky, the top suggestion may be “London, Kentucky”.
